There are of course many different accommodation options
for your trip to Liebenstein and Stuttgart.
We will briefly give you a rough idea of what is available:
is the major city in the region. There are lots of hotels, and also
many things to see and do in Stuttgart.
Stuttgart is 33 km away, which
translates to a € 65.- cab ride.
are also available, but unfortunately not at night. A train is,
however, a much
cheaper option - only € 7.20...
It might be best to book into a hotel near Neckarwestheim, which is
the town next to Liebenstein.
many nice places to stay around Neckarwestheim, however, unfortunately
in Neckarwestheim are already booked out, as the nuclear power
has 500 guest workers visiting for an annual conference...
We have been able to secure a number of rooms in the Hotel am Markt in
which is only a couple of minutes drive away from Liebenstein.
On top of this, at this stage we still have a booking for 9 rooms at
the Hotel Elefanten in
which also is quite close (see below).
Please send us an email as soon as possible, if you would like to book
into one of these hotels.
Prices for double rooms are 70 € and 75 €, respectively. Single rooms
in the Hotel am Markt are 55 €.

There are three little villages/towns along the Neckar river, all very
close to Neckarwestheim which offer accommodation:
Lauffen, Talheim, and Walheim
There are a few nice places in the nearby town of Lauffen. The "Hotel
has been recommended to us as the best address in Lauffen.
There are also cheaper options available, you'll find these on the website
You can get to Lauffen by train (Deutsche Bahn), by car (obviously), or
even by ship...
By train: there are trains
roughly every half an hour, for example, a train leaving "Stuttgart
arrives in "Lauffen (Neckar)" at 11:52. You can find train connections
on the website of the "Deutsche Bahn".
Don't bother pre-booking a ticket, you just have to buy it at the
station before you board the train,
tickets are € 7.20 (as per 30.05.05).
A cab from Lauffen to
Schloss Liebenstein will cost around € 15.- (Taxi Carrara
By car: From Stuttgart go on
to the A 81 (northbound, i.e. direction Heilbronn),
take the exit "Ilsfeld", then go through Ilsfeld to Lauffen or directly
You'll find a great map when you type in "Neckarwestheim" into the map
finder from viamichelin.
It should only take you about one hour, however, allow for more time.
It can be a bit tricky...
The owner of the "Elefanten" in Lauffen recommendd to us the "Hotel
Sonne" in Talheim.
Talheim is the next village down the river. Cab charges should be about
the same (€ 15,-).
There is also another little village nearby, with a similar name -
They have a website with some Hotels and
B&Bs as well.
Cabs to Liebenstein should roughly cost the same (€ 15,-)
Enjoy a visit to an "old" European website here,
if you'd like.
Unfortunaltely you can't stay at the old Roman House.
